Mama's boy | Raleigh Family Photographer
My two babies are twenty months apart and I totally remember being in this vortex of nursing, diapers, toys and nap time when they were both little. It seemed like the days passed at a snails pace and bedtime wouldn't come soon enough. I met plenty of people who told me to "enjoy the moment" and that "time passes too quickly", but when I was covered in spit up and hadn't showered in a few days, I totally didn't believe them. That's the funny thing about time, though. It is truly a thief.
There's nothing like looking back at your life....at a particular moment in time. It kind of makes your heart ache and your head spin just thinking about all the years passed, moments gone and memories made. Every single picture I took of my own children is priceless. The ones where we showed up, loved on each other and someone else took photos with ME in them are even more priceless. These moments of motherhood pass too quickly and the saddest part is that we are usually SO caught up in the stress of the day to day that it takes many years to look back and truly appreciate those moments. Being able to give others the gift of captured time will forever be where my heart lives. You make not know it when you see it, but I can guarantee you there will be some point in your life when you look back on these images and are so incredibly thankful you have them. You won't be looking at your messy house or how you cut bangs in 2018 and hated every second of them (speaking to myself here people...). What you will see is your life. Recorded. Saved. Documented. Cherished.
